    I heard icebreaker is the best quality and most expensive. Right now I only have access to XXL sizes and i'm probably an S. Anybody have any experiences with other merrino wool brands? Like Terramar? OR should I just not bother and find icebreakers?

    I like Icebreaker
    Patagonia and Smartwool are also nice.
    I have no experience with Arcteryx wool, but I hear it's still made in Canada.

    I have a Smartwool microweight t-shirt. I got a large so it fits kinda baggy in parts, but whatever I wear it under everything.

    I'm going to pick up an Icebreaker soon
